MapLike

trait MapLike[A, +B, +This <: MapLike[A, B, This] with Map[A, B]] extends PartialFunction[A, B] with IterableLike[(A, B), This] with GenMapLike[A, B, This] with Subtractable[A, This] with Parallelizable[(A, B), ParMap[A, B]]

A template trait for maps, which associate keys with values.

Implementation note: This trait provides most of the operations of a `Map` independently of its representation. It is typically inherited by concrete implementations of maps.

To implement a concrete map, you need to provide implementations of the following methods:

```def get(key: A): Option[B]
def iterator: Iterator[(A, B)]
def + [B1 >: B](kv: (A, B1)): This
def -(key: A): This```

If you wish that methods like `take`, `drop`, `filter` also return the same kind of map you should also override:

`def empty: This`

It is also good idea to override methods `foreach` and `size` for efficiency.

[use case]

Returns a new map containing the elements from the left hand operand followed by the elements from the right hand operand. The element type of the map is the most specific superclass encompassing the element types of the two operands.

Example:

```scala> val a = LinkedList(1)

scala> val c = a ++ b

scala> val e = c ++ d

8. def ++:[B >: (A, B), That](that: Traversable[B])(implicit bf: CanBuildFrom[This, B, That]): That

As with `++`, returns a new collection containing the elements from the left operand followed by the elements from the right operand.

As with `++`, returns a new collection containing the elements from the left operand followed by the elements from the right operand.

It differs from `++` in that the right operand determines the type of the resulting collection rather than the left one. Mnemonic: the COLon is on the side of the new COLlection type.

Example:

```scala> val x = List(1)
x: List[Int] = List(1)

scala> val z = x ++: y

This overload exists because: for the implementation of `++:` we should reuse that of `++` because many collections override it with more efficient versions.

Since `TraversableOnce` has no `++` method, we have to implement that directly, but `Traversable` and down can use the overload.

B

the element type of the returned collection.

That

the class of the returned collection. Where possible, `That` is the same class as the current collection class `Repr`, but this depends on the element type `B` being admissible for that class, which means that an implicit instance of type `CanBuildFrom[Repr, B, That]` is found.

that

the traversable to append.

bf

an implicit value of class `CanBuildFrom` which determines the result class `That` from the current representation type `Repr` and and the new element type `B`.

returns

a new collection of type `That` which contains all elements of this traversable collection followed by all elements of `that`.

21. def aggregate[B](z: ⇒ B)(seqop: (B, (A, B)) ⇒ B, combop: (B, B) ⇒ B): B

Aggregates the results of applying an operator to subsequent elements.

Aggregates the results of applying an operator to subsequent elements.

This is a more general form of `fold` and `reduce`. It has similar semantics, but does not require the result to be a supertype of the element type. It traverses the elements in different partitions sequentially, using `seqop` to update the result, and then applies `combop` to results from different partitions. The implementation of this operation may operate on an arbitrary number of collection partitions, so `combop` may be invoked an arbitrary number of times.

For example, one might want to process some elements and then produce a `Set`. In this case, `seqop` would process an element and append it to the list, while `combop` would concatenate two lists from different partitions together. The initial value `z` would be an empty set.

`pc.aggregate(Set[Int]())(_ += process(_), _ ++ _)`

Another example is calculating geometric mean from a collection of doubles (one would typically require big doubles for this).

B

the type of accumulated results

z

the initial value for the accumulated result of the partition - this will typically be the neutral element for the `seqop` operator (e.g. `Nil` for list concatenation or `0` for summation) and may be evaluated more than once

seqop

an operator used to accumulate results within a partition

24. def applyOrElse[A1 <: A, B1 >: B](x: A1, default: (A1) ⇒ B1): B1

Applies this partial function to the given argument when it is contained in the function domain.

Applies this partial function to the given argument when it is contained in the function domain. Applies fallback function where this partial function is not defined.

Note that expression `pf.applyOrElse(x, default)` is equivalent to

`if(pf isDefinedAt x) pf(x) else default(x)`

except that `applyOrElse` method can be implemented more efficiently. For all partial function literals compiler generates `applyOrElse` implementation which avoids double evaluation of pattern matchers and guards. This makes `applyOrElse` the basis for the efficient implementation for many operations and scenarios, such as:

• combining partial functions into `orElse`/`andThen` chains does not lead to excessive `apply`/`isDefinedAt` evaluation
• `lift` and `unlift` do not evaluate source functions twice on each invocation
• `runWith` allows efficient imperative-style combining of partial functions with conditionally applied actions

For non-literal partial function classes with nontrivial `isDefinedAt` method it is recommended to override `applyOrElse` with custom implementation that avoids double `isDefinedAt` evaluation. This may result in better performance and more predictable behavior w.r.t. side effects.

x

the function argument

returns

55. def flatMap[B](f: (A) ⇒ GenTraversableOnce[B]): Map[B]

[use case] Builds a new collection by applying a function to all elements of this map and using the elements of the resulting collections.

[use case]

Builds a new collection by applying a function to all elements of this map and using the elements of the resulting collections.

For example:

`def getWords(lines: Seq[String]): Seq[String] = lines flatMap (line => line split "\\W+")`

The type of the resulting collection is guided by the static type of map. This might cause unexpected results sometimes. For example:

```// lettersOf will return a Seq[Char] of likely repeated letters, instead of a Set
def lettersOf(words: Seq[String]) = words flatMap (word => word.toSet)

// lettersOf will return a Set[Char], not a Seq
def lettersOf(words: Seq[String]) = words.toSet flatMap (word => word.toSeq)

// xs will be an Iterable[Int]
val xs = Map("a" -> List(11,111), "b" -> List(22,222)).flatMap(_._2)

// ys will be a Map[Int, Int]
val ys = Map("a" -> List(1 -> 11,1 -> 111), "b" -> List(2 -> 22,2 -> 222)).flatMap(_._2)```
B

f

a new map resulting from applying the given collection-valued function `f` to each element of this map and concatenating the results.

Produces a collection containing cumulative results of applying the operator going right to left. The head of the collection is the last cumulative result.

Note: will not terminate for infinite-sized collections.

That

the actual type of the resulting collection

z

op

bf
